    I must be slow this morning (or most of the time for that matter ;) ) but wasn't the risk in signing Harvin that he would get injured, but that when healthy, he's too good not to go for broke, at least until Russell, Okung, and Thomas need to get paid?

  • Well here's one Niner fan that will take the high road. When Crabtree went down, there were a number of Hawk fans that came to our forum who showed good sportsmanship. So thought I'd return the favor.

    As a fan of the NFL you have to sit back and admire both of these teams for fielding a potential champion. Like many have said before I'd prefer to see the best players on the field but injuries do happen. No fun.

    Wishing Percy a speedy recovery.

    Cmon NinerBuff, you've been here long enough to know never to believe a word Peach says. Even when shes being completely honest. Just always assume there is a :sarcasm_on: next to all her post. Even the perfectly normal responses.

  • Seriously guys. Why do we let Niner fans troll our main board so much now? Its really offputting to have to read constantly. Makes me second guess how much time i want to spend on the site. I come to discuss Hawks. Not read Niner fans having to give their 2 cents on every subject.


    I am also contemplating not posting here much anymore because of this. There is another Hawk board I check out from time to time but that one has way less whiner 'blah" "blah" "blah".
    I will probably be over there more if these niner trolls don't start disappearing.


    T-Sizzle:
    Weak. Posts like these make me ashamed to be associated with fans with this attitude. Some fans that post here are so mentally weak or insecure....maybe both. Until I joined this board I didn't know how the majority of fans acted. I will have to say Im disapointed by the overreaction. You were all fine with it yesterday and today you choose to cry about it? Grow up.

  • If memory serves me correctly we were in every game last season, shoulda coulda won at least two additional games if not for the defense , our offense improved on a weekly basis, last half of the season , we were as dangerous as anybody in the league on offense, and all that without Harvin..

    If he's able to play - bonus
    If not - nothing changes

    Go Hawks!!

  • Anyone just listen to ET3 on 950 KJR. They asked him about Percy Harvin and whether they're talking about it in the lockerroom and worrying. His response (I'm paraphrasing), "Next man up. We went far last year without him. We have great receivers-guys that can be just as good."

    No longer worried!

    Yeah i'm hearing basically "if" he needs surgery, hes out for the season...


    That might make sense at week 8, we are in training camp. What the hell? I don't understand why a "minor labrum tear" couldn't be dealt with in like 2 months... But I know nothing about medicine.

    I appreciate the references to Washington living out here, where we have a grocery store called "Piggly Wiggly".

    You could have been even more "Washington" by referencing Fred Meyer, though.

  • AlaskanViking wrote:Vikings fan here. Not looking to "talk smack", only to give my 2 cents on a WR who I have followed very closely for his entire NFL career.

    First off, Percy is a heck of a weapon on offense. Whenever he plays you guys are going to be happy with him. His elusiveness with the ball in his hands is just silly. He is also tough as nails on gamedays, not shying away from contact at all, almost to the point of being reckless (when he was a Viking I used to worry about how long of a career he would have). His ability to run out of the backfield, both inside and outside the tackles, gives him that "gadget factor" where defenses always have to account for him no matter where he is on the field. He is amazing at getting YAC. I read someone on here say that he wasn't a fit on a Ponder-led offense, and that isn't true at all. With QBs like that who are best with short quick passes, Harvin is the perfect WR. It makes more sense to go for high-completion short passes and let Percy rack up YAC. He rarely saw deep passes downfield.

    That being said, you are now getting your first taste of Percy World. He hates to practice. A lot. He also is nicked up a lot with nagging injuries. For as long as he's in the NFL, there will always be drama surrounding Percy Harvin. It's sad, because his attitude didn't really turn so poor until Randy Moss came back for that brief stint with the Vikings. Percy reportedly followed Moss around like a lost puppy and was enamored with him. Moss behaved horribly in his short return to Minnesota (ex: the lunchroom incident where Moss blew up and screamed that he wouldn't feed the team caterer's food to his dog). After Moss was let go, Harvin and then-coach Brad Childress got into a heated altercation, and Percy hurled a weight at Childress (although it didn't hit him).


    In the end, I wouldn't be surprised if Percy ends up being fine medically and this was a way to get out of some practices. You can decide for yourselves how much that does or doesn't bother you. There was a time when those antics made Vikings fans say "Meh, as long as he plays on Sundays..." But over time, the constant off-field drama and prima-donna behavior wore on people and chased him out of Minnesota. It's not often you see teams trade away talented WRs in their prime. Especially since at the time we had a completely bare WR cupboard without Harvin. I don't want to see Percy fail in Seattle, the trade is done now and both teams got what they wanted. Hopefully it works out for both teams.



    Good post. Thank you.

    For the guy who posted below asking "how this can be drama when he has an injury"..Well you just don't understand because you haven't been following Harvin his whole career. What AlaskanViking is saying is, "He may need surgery, but there's a good chance this is just Percy not wanting to practice".

    Am I the only one frankly embarrassed that the local media asked THREE questions on Harvin only, for a grand total of just over a minute's reaction???

    Then moved on to how "exciting" it was to see James Carpenter back and asking how Tarvaris Jackson looked on day one.

    ??????????????????????

    Three vague answers on Harvin and we all move on skipping to the next easy subject.

    Good grief.

    Here's the thing: Pete and John don't put up with that crap. If he starts being a prima donna, or we don't see him in TC like, ever, then he'll be down the road. You don't treat anyone other than your QB like he's irreplaceable, especially with the talent that we mine from the mid rounds. Hell, Tate can do all of what Harvin can do, if not to the same degree, and Tate high points and fights for the ball better than Harvin does.

    We paid Houshmandzadeh how much to go away and play for someone else ? As soon as it won't slaughter our cap, Harvin will be gone in a heartbeat, and forget about getting a big contract again....just ask Moss, Terrell Owens, etc. So I really don't see Percy holding anyone hostage.

    First off, Percy is a heck of a weapon on offense. Whenever he plays you guys are going to be happy with him. His elusiveness with the ball in his hands is just silly. He is also tough as nails on gamedays, not shying away from contact at all, almost to the point of being reckless (when he was a Viking I used to worry about how long of a career he would have). His ability to run out of the backfield, both inside and outside the tackles, gives him that "gadget factor" where defenses always have to account for him no matter where he is on the field. He is amazing at getting YAC. I read someone on here say that he wasn't a fit on a Ponder-led offense, and that isn't true at all. With QBs like that who are best with short quick passes, Harvin is the perfect WR. It makes more sense to go for high-completion short passes and let Percy rack up YAC. He rarely saw deep passes downfield.

    That being said, you are now getting your first taste of Percy World. He hates to practice. A lot. He also is nicked up a lot with nagging injuries. For as long as he's in the NFL, there will always be drama surrounding Percy Harvin. It's sad, because his attitude didn't really turn so poor until Randy Moss came back for that brief stint with the Vikings. Percy reportedly followed Moss around like a lost puppy and was enamored with him. Moss behaved horribly in his short return to Minnesota (ex: the lunchroom incident where Moss blew up and screamed that he wouldn't feed the team caterer's food to his dog). After Moss was let go, Harvin and then-coach Brad Childress got into a heated altercation, and Percy hurled a weight at Childress (although it didn't hit him).


    In the end, I wouldn't be surprised if Percy ends up being fine medically and this was a way to get out of some practices. You can decide for yourselves how much that does or doesn't bother you. There was a time when those antics made Vikings fans say "Meh, as long as he plays on Sundays..." But over time, the constant off-field drama and prima-donna behavior wore on people and chased him out of Minnesota. It's not often you see teams trade away talented WRs in their prime. Especially since at the time we had a completely bare WR cupboard without Harvin. I don't want to see Percy fail in Seattle, the trade is done now and both teams got what they wanted. Hopefully it works out for both teams.



    Good post. Thank you.

    For the guy who posted below asking "how this can be drama when he has an injury"..Well you just don't understand because you haven't been following Harvin his whole career. What AlaskanViking is saying is, "He may need surgery, but there's a good chance this is just Percy not wanting to practice".

    But didn't an mri show a slight tear? How is he to pull that off?

    Yes that is my hunch, although it may turn out this in a legitimate serious freak injury. That's the thing: With Percy you never know if he is really seriously hurt or not, because he hates practices. That's what I meant by constant drama. It's the "boy who cried wolf" effect when it comes to him and injury reports.

    I'm not saying that he's completely faking being hurt somehow, but the fact that he's delaying practice for at least 5 days against the recommendation of the team doctors (and my experience of following him as a Vikings fan) makes me suspicious...

    "Team doctors and the Seahawks recommended Harvin doesn’t get surgery, and practice while getting treatment."

    I understand your view, but here in Merica, the only reporters who ask tough questions are Bob Costas and Jerry Grey, and they really are c**ts. (and midgets) Local reporters don't have to ask tough questions, because La Canfora and Schefter will just make up two opposite answers to all the tough questions that went unasked.

  • Apparently Pete said today that if Harvin has surgery, his season is over.

    "If you have hip surgery, it's a lot longer than the season," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. "Hip surgery, he's not going to play for the season."


    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nf ... e/2591055/

    Call me crazy but this article is almost starting to sound like its is going to be a showdown between the Seahawks and their doctors and Harvin and his doctors. Yikes. Could Pete be using IR as a threat to make Percy think long and hard about getting a surgery for something he could play through?

    Great Point.

    .......Perhaps Percy has elected not to get hit by Browner and Chancellor, as well.....?

    You can take someone off the preseason PUP list at anytime. You can't put them on PUP once training camp starts.

    From that same article:

    "A lot of guys just take what they hear from the outside and build their own perspective," said Rice, who considers Harvin one of his best friends.

    "But he's a real good guy. Everybody likes him around here. He's a guy that comes to work every day, on and off the field, does the extra work in the weight room, the film study. Everybody's going to form their own opinion, and when the light's shining on you, they're always going to find something bad to say."

  • I would also point to Doug Baldwin's presser from today in which he said he had to learn to take a break in the offseason. He said he tried to push himself too hard to compete and that lead to him physically peaking early in the season and inviting injury.

    I might have been skeptical if we were talking migraines. But a torn labrum is something that is difficult to fake and isn't an excuse that one would use to skip out on a few practices.

    Well especially when the team itself said it was torn on the mri. So you cant really fake a tear.

  • Day 1 and Harvin already injured. Nice start to the 2013 season. The concerning part is the injury is to his leg. For a WR that relies on his speed and quickness, that's not good. Christine Michael get ready, you're the next up for kickoff returns (that were there's a big hole now). Not too worried about the WR corps since most of them were here last year and they were ok.

    Right, my comment was directed at the Vikings fan that came over to stir the pot by suggesting that this was all ploy by Harvin to get out of practices. I don't buy that crap for a second.

    I am certain the FO did their homework. They vetted Harvin with Pete, Bevell, Rice, etc etc.

    To me, it's clear that this is one of those "freak" injuries and suggestions that this is somehow a consequence of Percy's attitude towards practice is just ridiculous. No one is saying anything negative about Harvin, on the contrary, there have been no shortage of reports that Harvin is a workout warrior and is excited to be with the Hawks.

    Not to mention the emergence of both Stephen Williams and Phil Bates as camp stars, per Burger's reports.
